Re: windscreen ?!?!?!?!

Difficult choice...I'm a big fan of Carbon Fiber but I vote for colored, assuming is clear.

Re: windscreen ?!?!?!?!

I've always preferred double bubble myself; better wind protection. Some of the new "see through" mirrored screens look cool.

Re: windscreen ?!?!?!?!

Have you seen the newer version of the screen on the left? It's a double bubble and you can actually see through it.

Re: windscreen ?!?!?!?!

I guess it depends in a way what the use of it is. Track probably a clear double bubble. For street id go w/either a smoke or a colored one that matches the bike real well. I havent seen the new see through one but Im sure it looks sweet! Ima check it out sometime. right:

Re: windscreen ?!?!?!?!

LP makes a "V2 Speedscreen". I just put one on my wife's bike and it made a big difference. 'Wasn't too pricey either.

Re: windscreen ?!?!?!?!

I would recomemd the "EURO' Speed screen. Since it sounds like you don't do alot of track riding, it has a rolled lip at the top, is about 2" taller than stock, and provides excellent wind protection. Used them before and they are great. Look great too. Go with the clear.............

Re: windscreen ?!?!?!?!

You might also try F. Fabbri. They make very nice screens. They have smooth lines on their "double-bouble" type...
